The little dress.

IMG_2148

Hi my dear readers ,i love the comfort of my boy-ish style but sometimes a girls just got be a girl ,especially when the desire to twirl and skip along the streets hits.There’s always something edgy about full dresses especially this one ,there’s nothing nothing wrong with showing a bit of softness to your toughness .

This Asos dress has been in my wardrobe for ages now ,and today am taking it on a different take with a leather belt which is a game changer ,i found mine from kiki fashion about 4 years ago and am hopelessly in love with it and i just cant put it down .i literally want to sleep in it I’m kidding !Lets bow down for these Amina Abdul Jillil shoes..damn its always magical when i have them on ,plays perfectly well with dress .

Have an amazing week ahead sweetheart and thank you for stopping by .

Love.love.love.Always,Lavidos.X IMG_2148IMG_2128IMG_2130IMG_2138IMG_2141IMG_2149IMG_2173IMG_2152IMG_2177

 

HIGH WAISTED JEANS .

IMG_2434

Are high waisted jeans the best style ever ?

oooh yes …after turning high waisted jeans into my uniform ,i am totally sold on this look hence my biased fashion take on the high waisted trend ,keep “em coming ! of course this style is everything you want and need in a look .They been hot in the 80s and 90s ,from those cool mom jeans styles to cool boyfriend cuts,to skinny jeans ,the denims all have one major thing in common ,the higher the waist than wed ever thought thought wed wear .

High wasted jeans add curves where they’re not ,keep everything into the right place ,super tight and fitted ,accentuate curves in the sweetest way possible ,and give a bit of retro -urban -chic vibe to a look .

Yes.yes.yes i say ,Elongating legs ,looking more professional ,hence even work appropriate when worn with blouses and tucked in shirts ,looking trendy when the weekend hits the calendar from work to the club ,they just be the staple we’ve been wearing while taking it for granted .

I’m just obsessed with them ,as i cant get over simple effortless look of my high waisted jeans and turtlenecks which are just so stylish and add a chic element to everything they come in contact with .I’m a fan .But you know what they say ,why stop when it looks and feels so good ?

Milk it while its hot ,why fix it if it aint broken .wick

Enjoy your weekend lovers in dem killer denim high waisted pants ..x .lavidoz

NUDE TONES…

IMG_2354

Hi guys !!! I know that most times we naturally go for the colorful things in our wardrobes when we need to dress up but nude tones would be the most elegant  alternative to bold colors and prints .I find pairing different shades of neutrals to be one of the most classy ensembles on the planet .It easily gives you a clean look without looking like your trying too hard . When you want to pull of this kind of look ,you are thinking ,beige ,gold silver ,grey,brown etc. If you have any of these colors in your ward robe incorporate them into an outfit and see for yourself how easy it is to pull off that effortless chic look …go on give it a try !

Today’s look can be worn to formal dinners ,cocktails ,fashion events and more ,i got this skirt form Zara ages ago and i dare say they fit that qualification 100% ,one of my favorite skirt ,am sure this is not the last time you’ll be seeing her on my page ,my turtleneck is by splash mlimani city .

I hope you are all doing good.Don’t forget to leave me a comment i always  appreciate it .Thanks lovelies ! X

CHOKER X OFF SHOULDER

IMG_2316

Hello lovelies ….. sorry my dear Dames and Divas i have been  MIA but am back ,promise to shoot you with some interesting posts..

Everyone seems to be crazy about chokers these days so i have decided to join the party .I think it looks really great on people with long necks cos its quite visible and elegant when they have it on and then i think of my really small neck and wonder if it would really flatter me .Basically ,i have never been a choker person .The truth is ladies you don’t have to indulge in every trend, fashion is ultimately about what  works well with your frame type.However you should never hold back when it comes to trying something new ,this summer my bandana played as a choker .

Lets talk about how i have played my off shoulder with my red choker today …..drama drama drama ,the off shoulder(zara) is one cool trend it works well with all body types and frames ,i wanted this  look to be slightly feminine and fun so i played it down with this skinny jeans by Zara too .I always say fashion is about having fun ,play around with everything you have ,its not about buying the most expensive things ,its about conforming ,its not looking like others its just having fun and being you some days you feel sane ,some days you feel insane ,some days you feel sophisticated and other days you feel like a Queen. Feel anything you want ,just have fun with it .

Have an amazing weekend ahead sweethearts and thank you for stopping by .Love.Lavidoz.x

FLORAL SKIRT

IMG_1084

ya”ll Reddy for this ? (dun,nuh,nuh )

Another day ,another mid skirt !its no question that mid skirts are one of my favorite styles to rock all year long .I love them ,you  can pair them with tights,booties and flats .When i saw this  floral skirt hanging on the asos walls ,they looked quite matrimony but it bugged my mind so much i just had to make it mine .There’s something about the loudness and  fullness of a full floral skirt .There’s so much character ,so much femininity and personality ….everything style should embody.If one skirt can give me all that then its definitely a winner !

This skirt does all the talking ,so the outfit really didn’t need much more ,I wore this with  a white top and blue satin pumps to make a statement ,my pumps are by asos too . This outfit is easily overkill to say the very least ,but i still think it works because you know ..less is more !Sometimes you can say a whole a lot by taking a simple color to another level when you totally overdose on your pop color of choice!With this really blue and yellow i was able to make a serious fashion statement .

Thank you for visiting again Lovely ! Lots of Love from me ! Lavidoz.x

DUSTER DENIM COAT

IMG_0887

IMG_0916(1) IMG_0898 IMG_0887 IMG_0883 IMG_0933 IMG_0894 IMG_0891 IMG_0877Every piece in your wardrobe has double ,triple if not quadruple ways to be styled .Sometimes people ask me how many clothes I’ve got or how big my wardrobe must be and i always try to explain that the idea is to learn how to wear an item in 10 different ways when really you haven’t .Now that’s how to max-out on everything you own .This saves you from having to splash all the time .Girl !If you wear everything in your wardrobe only once and then you are out looking for the next new thing,i m sorry you know nothing about styling .This has nothing to do with how rich or not so rich you are. We have to try to aim to achieve maximum return on our fashion investment because being fashionable also means you have to be efficient in the use of your wardrobe or the fun is not worth it .So ,lets get these creative minds out of the box and kicking ,shall we ?

The first thing to know about repeat (recycled) fashion is to invest in styling basis .Things like blazers,the white t shirt,denims,floral prints ,stripey,little black dress(LBD) ,These pieces can  be worn a million times over without notice .I call them foundation to a functional wardrobe .Every other statement piece you add to your collection is there to facilitate the re-styling of those pieces .For instance ,this duster coat i posted it weeks ago  as a denim dress and today i have worn it over these Woolworth jeans and turtleneck from splash as a duster coat ,with the current  weather in Dar it  plays perfectly .I predict this coat/dress will  be relevant to me for years and years to come,since its denim ….talk about money well spent .

All am trying to say ,your wardrobe is twice as big as you think it is.Always remember ,every piece you own has stories to tell ,help find and tell that story ..plus you’d be helping the environment too.Thank you for vising again lovely!Lots of Love from from me !….Lavidos.X

LAVISH ALICE

IMG_1024

You know how they always say” if your not sure wear black ” ?….well i think they need to add white to it .Black and white has always been and will always be my favorite fashion color go-to .Its clear to see why they are the primary colors in the color palette.They can be worn in any season and at any volume ,in other words,you can never be too black and white at any time of the year ….I mean they were not called primary colors for nothing ,right ?

Lets take a moment for this Lavish Alice cape blazer …my heart froze the minute i saw  it  ,i knew it belonged in my life , fireeeeeee ,the  fact that its a classic black and white and caped  ,its those pieces in your wardrobe that transform your look from 0-100 real quick ,with this look i wanted to be dressed up ,so paired it with  black shorts  from Woolworth  and i still had room to accessorize with my bag(Asos) for a pop of color … Snap ! that’s what i mean, in other news have i mentioned that capes are the” it” at moment ?There you go ..I’ve said it ,so don’t stay in the dark ,go get them in every design and  shades from dresses to blazers you can work and rock away !

Remember ,don’t be afraid to max out on any black and white item in your wardrobe cause its sure money well spent to spend them !…i mean  your black and whites not all your money ..lol . X

AFRICAN PRINTS.

Yay !! its a holiday today ,so let me bug y’all with a post …wick

Hey beautiful people its me again ,but back this time with Ankara ,words cant express how much i love these fabrics. They are forever gorgeous .In the past few years  Ankara has become a force to reckon with all over the world with celebrities and designers trying to put their stamp on them and boy i dare say they have put so much glam into it .

This African piece is by a Tanzanian designer bijoux trendy and honestly speaking she has stolen my heart with her creativity ,the high slit ,the patterns on this maxi  skirt …ooh lord she be killing it ,i choose this turtle neck because i like the simplicity it brings against the busy prints of the skirt .Slip on a pair strappy heels by Steve madden and you are good to go .

If you don’t have African prints in your collection i command you to get one now….lol no,but honestly its absolutely worth it and am not saying it cause i ‘m African ,i say it because its truly a fantastic fashion statement ,play more with your prints ,show off more skin ,go wild with  colors ,do everything be open minded about your wardrobe choices and you will inevitably boost your confidence ,if you are able to dress out of your comfort zone and still look fabulous ,that’s a win win situation if you ask .

I hope your holiday has been fantastic .Enjoy the rest of it my  people …Peace& Love

Ramadan Kareem .

IMG_0744

Hope everyone is having a blessed holy month .

Ramadan is here and some of you may be wondering what the most elegant ways to dress during this holy month are ,for many it is important to stay fashionable ,essential key pieces in putting out a Ramadan outfit together are head accessory ,the caftan,flowy dress or skirt ,structured blazer just to mention a few .

I am sharing this look with you guys as my first Ramadan post ,i was invited for if-tar and i had to put this outfit together ,so here i am blogging about it for my Muslim readers ,the pleated skirt came in mind first and i borrowed it from my sister ,shirt is by splash  i finished my look off by this  purple  head scurf which was a gift from a lovely friend ,I felt super elegant and comfortable in this fit .IMG_0748 IMG_0736 IMG_0769 IMG_0734 IMG_0750 IMG_0744 IMG_0763 IMG_0743

We cant stress enough how important it is to showcase your best element but having a humble and loving attitude is the key not because its Ramadan but because its the most important element in your wardrobe ,yourself ,your kindness ,it is the number one attribute to any outfit .

Stay Beautiful,Stay Fashionable ,Stay Kind .

Ramadan Kareem .

 

 

 

The One -Piece Closet .

image1(1)

Nothing screams comfort and convenience better than a closet rich in one -piece outfits .They are ready to go at any time .I love shirts dresses for this reason .They make you feel at ease and yet super stylish in a very relaxed kind a way ….what can a chica ask for ?If you are lazy about fashion or the type that cant be bothered with the hustle of pairing outfits all the time i’d say ,fill your wardrobe with the coolest one piece(s) you can find in any store.This way you do very little but still impress wherever you go .

If you are looking to integrate easier pieces into your wardrobe its not hard ,simply set your sight on shirt dresses like i have won ,jumpsuits ,playsuits ,shift dresses ,oversized coats or cardigans and even dungarees .These days even an oversized t-shirt will pass for a full outfit .You have nothing to lose stocking these up on any of these,they are a great investment ,you wanna know why ?They are pieces you can wear on casual occasions ,semi formal get together or even the sunny beach …..talk about saving while you are spending ….need i say more ?

I bought this denim dress recently from my forever 21 and it already means the world to me .it is beyond amazing it is easy to style and i promise to do more posts just to prove this to you  i have finished my look  with these strappy sandals by topshop to make a statement with my outfit ,this red pointed strappy shoes always win my heart. Hands down !!!

Have a lovely weekend .image1 image2 image3 image1(1) image2(1)
